Riga is a fairly large city, as you’d expect being the capital of Latvia. It’s also the largest city in the Baltic states, home to nearly 700,000 people. Not huge by western standards, but is that a bad thing? I think not.

The old town has cobbled streets and a homely feel to it. I manage to park my bike in cafe central, find free wifi and locate a reasonably priced hostel. Try that in London! After a feed I’m all sorted for accommodation, freshened up and ready for a walk around the city.

It’s late here so most places will be closed. I don’t mind, there’s nothing I need particularly other than a walk around and chill out for the night.

About Sophie Whiptank - aka Bart

I'm just a bloke doing some stuff, the more interesting bits I post on my blog. Scroll down far enough and you'll see me riding from Melbourne Australia to Birmingham, England in 2014. But now I'm working on another project, a single cylinder motorbike engine at 2750cc!
